RUD30 rudder blade examples:
The above example shows a typical RUD30 installation in a tiller steered composite boat. The 6D063 bearing has a GRP tube which makes installation very simple, strong and durable. The rudder stock is in aluminium 6082 (stainless steel is possible at a surcharge). By defining the distance H =  "top of deck to bottom of hull" the system can easily be defined. It's advisable to specify H with a bit over length (10-25 mm) so the bearing has a bit over length above deck. Please click on the PDF symbol to open the PDF version of this drawing.

The above example shows a typical RUD30 installation in a tiller steered composite boat with a separate bottom and top bearing. The 6T063 bearing has a GRP tube which makes installation very simple, strong and durable. The loose 42040STP top bearing has build in stops to limit the rudder travel to 2 x 40. The rudder stock is in aluminium 6082 (stainless steel is possible at a surcharge). By defining the distance H =  "top of deck to bottom of hull" the system can easily be defined.

The above example shows a typical RUD30 installation in a wheel steered composite boat with a separate bottom and top bearing. The 6T078 bearing has a GRP tube which makes installation very simple, strong and durable and is sealed on top with a gaiter. The top bearing is a so called "multi purpose" bearing 4S060Z which incorporates a self-aligning roller bearing, with a vertical ball bearing (to keep the rudder up) and a deck cover - removable with a winch handle. The rudder stock is in aluminium 6082 (stainless steel is possible at a surcharge). By defining the distance H1 =  "top of deck to bottom of hull", and H2 = "height of quadrant/tiller arm" the system can easily be defined.
